Back in the day I was a Civil Air Patrol Cadet. We dressed out in pretty much the same as the military. It is getting cold here tonight and I think the accuguessers are saying the high here tomorrow will be 32F.
Last year my Mother dug this out and gave it to me.
It appears to be an M-1965 field jacket made in 1972 based on the contract number above. It still fits even though its been around since the *cough* mid 70's. I have looked around on the Interwebz and it seems prudent to NOT wear this jacket tomorrow
So be it. It's a safe queen jacket. Never thought I would have one of those.
